at heart lake and Mayfield there is a touchless drive-thru wash. I went through it and my car was cleaner than ANY coin wash I have ever been too. Basic wash is about $8.

Wash it at home... all the gas station car washes do a terrible job and the coin op isn't that great either.

There is a problem with some E36's where water can leak into the DME when going through drivethrough car wash's. I had never heard of this problem until I was half way through a car wash and my car stalled. It wouldnt start again. Had to get it towed to the $tealer.
Most people dont experience this problem, but it has affected HUNDREDS of E36 owners. Some even started a petition to send to BMW for a re-imbusement.. but I dont think it went anywhere.
I lost $1000.

yeah i remember reading about that once before and i don't usually go to the drive thru anyways.

and about washing it in the drive way, can't do that either. it's a new area so there is mud everywhere thats why i'm asking where the closest car wash is.

so come on someone has to know!!!

It shouldn't be too long until they add gravel to your driveway, or do you already when? :( But once you get some gravel, you can do it on your driveway.
